Hi Aalok Jain here i am 22 yr old from India and had many ambition in life. One of them is to study abroad . So on october 6,2020 I go for a medical visa appointment and physician told me your heart has a different murr murr sound and I was worried and ask many questions to her . She said murr murr is normal some times and may be critical so I had to go for another tests . She done my ECG and it shows Left ventricular Hypertrophy is present in my heart and I am unaware of these terms. I come home normally and took an appointment from a cardiologist and he done my echo cardiography and there my life change . He found my valve has critical regurgitation and my gradient is also critically high so he suggest me to go for a surgery in a week. I went for another clinic and they found the same . So I finally go for On-X mechanical valve replacement on 17 October with lots of confidence and positive attitude . I wake up in an Icu after 17 hours with tubes in my mouth and got scared .Also my resting heart rate is very high average of 120 and I am not able to speak due to some nerve incubation. That makes me worried finally after a month I am able to speak normally and I am feeling well but sometimes so much tensed also because I thought my life will over in a couple of years .But this forum give me a lot of confidence by reading outstanding stories and information.
